Next Ford Ranger test mule spotted

Next Ford Ranger test mule spotted

The latest spy shots of the 2019 Ford Ranger have just come in, and this time around we were able to get a closer look at the suspension bits under the pick-up truck.

These shots reveal the rear leaf-springs suspension, which is a tried-and-tested layout for a pickup truck. Plus, with the dirt all over, it’s pretty obvious that the car maker is putting this truck through some serious off-roading too. Sources expect the next Ranger to have 2WD as standard, with 4WD to be offered as an option with some variants.

At first glance it is difficult to tell if the U.S version will look any different from the Ranger that’s sold globally now. That’s because most mid-size pickups are usually modified for the ASEAN markets to look more aerodynamic, with car-like styling. The North American version, however, may wear its own unique edgy styling.

Powering the new Ranger will be a range of four and six cylinder Ecoboost engines. It is possible that the direct injected twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 could be reserved as a range-topper. Although the car maker is yet to confirm if a diesel motor will make it to the line-up, Ford is expected to use their new ten-speed automatic gearbox, that’s been co-developed with GM. 

Expect the next Ford Ranger to hit roads in the second half of 2018 after it is possibly revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
